What do you typically see first?
Possibilities? or Obstacles?

Do you first feel how you can accomplish?
Or are you faced with the “I can’t?”

We live in a world of infinite possibilities in the greatest land to make dreams a reality. 

If not already, train yourself to first ask,
“How can I?” and act upon your vision 💝

Honor Failing

How often have you felt or said to yourself, “But I don’t want to fail!” Or, such a thought actually keeps you stuck in an old pattern? Fear can be your enemy or you can turn it into a driving force.

Wondering how others “see you” or afraid to try something new is a kiss of death to remain stuck in a limited view of the world. Become adventurous! Get out and experience new things. You can only learn by failing - so don’t resist it - HONOR it! Make “failing” a fun adventure knowing you are growing, evolving, and creating a new and better life experience for yourself!

And utilize the simple philosophy of being your very best each day with whatever it is you are doing or tasked with. Ask yourself, “How can I be giving my very best right now?”

Then plan, do, check, adjust. Envision the outcome while being prepared to learn and adjust should “failure” occur. It is a process - Embrace it all!

Be willing to laugh - especially at yourself.
And I love all of you folks with a sense of humor that brighten my day! Your creativity brings new light to an often bitter world. Thank you for spreading your joy ❤️

This is a custom, one of a kind Schwinn 7’ Unicycle created by my Dad. I sat there and watched him sketch out the initial drawing on our kitchen table after I bent a shorter one he had brought home from Japan for me to try. He said, “What garbage.” And we went inside and he created the Schwinn Giraffe - this was a prototype but they decided to go with the shorter version for production.

Success can be defined in many ways but for me nothing spells success more than setting a personal vision and accomplishing it.

It is personal and not communal. It is a reward from the inside out rather than acclaim and fortune. However you decide may you achieve the success you seek. 💝

This is from my devotional this morning and how appropriate to this post:

“Henry Ford went broke five times before he succeeded in business. Albert Einstein didn’t speak until he was four, didn’t read until he was seven, and was considered “mentally slow” by his teacher.

“The famous sculptor, Rodin, was thought to be an idiot by his father. Walt Disney was fired for a lack of creativity. Lombardi was accused of a lack of motivation [seriously?!]. Winston Churchill failed the sixth grade. Abraham Lincoln’s resume is one long trail of failures and disappointment. Fred Astaire was considered an average dancer and screen test failure. Rocky Marciano couldn’t make it in baseball.

IBM passed when first offered the photocopier (so did Kodak and RCA). Cheese, penicillin, paper towels, and aspirin were all by-products of mistakes [yellow sticky notes too!].

“History proves time and time again the number one qualifier for outstanding achievement is failure.

“We all fall down, but we mustn’t stay down. Every failure is an opportunity to begin again in a wiser fashion. We have more going for us than the formidable than the human spirit. We have the help of the Holy Spirit.

“Get up! Get moving! Quit whining! Seek guidance, and live your life to exceed every ody’s expectations.”

Deserving of Success

How little this is understood today. In the "instant everything” we are surrounded by, so many are of the belief they should have things handed to them, or that success comes without real effort.

One fact of life will never change, even if you get "lucky" with instant success, your true self-esteem won't be lifted from the inside until you reach that point where you feel you are "deserving" of success. And to get to that point requires focused discipline and a solid work ethic.

Masterful Leadership

Vince Lombardi was one of the greatest coaches to emerge way before there were great coaches and still modeled today.

His secret was in motivating and inspiring his players to rise to the very best of their abilities while focusing on the team as a whole. This is an art of masterful leadership.

Each of us has the ability to be our very best each day. And what’s the payoff?

Higher self-esteem, greater self-worth, improved self-discipline, and the deserving of success. On a larger scale, you uplift, inspire, and provide hope to all others around you.
❤️

Wishing you a beautiful Sunday fulfilled with love and gratitude. 💝

Earlier in the week, my daily devotional had this sentence: “Cursed is all learning that does not point to the cross of Jesus Christ.” What a profound statement. But when I learned this was written in Princeton’s original charter I was amazed at how far we have come to remove God from our society in many different ways. Of course, it’s no longer a statement in their charter. 

That sent me searching and looking up all sorts of fascinating factoids last night which eventually led me to the meme’s quote - and it filled me with glee.

Vibe

The world is energy - your vibrational flow is key to everything in your world. How you experience life on a day to day basis is directly linked to whether you are vibrating at a high or low state.

Here are some simple ways to protect your vibe - not mine but a great start. Keep your eye on the vision - steer clear of the past - especially that which does not serve you!

Beyond Your Limitations

Go beyond your comfort zone; spread your wings and fly. Soar above the limiting you and express yourself to the world.
You are that special 💝

And yes, I miss flying that plane, the F-16, so very much. It was a part of me and at times defined me. In doing so that also limited me.

No longer. It was a phenomenal 19 year experience - one nothing else can replace - its memories built wisdom that propels my future course. Don’t hold onto the past. Allow yourself to grow from it and become an even greater you 👍🏻😃

The Soul

Always remember you are love at your core.
No hate, no anger, no doubt, no sadness, and no fear.

These emotions cloud your true essence. When you feel a negative emotion gaining traction - STOP AND PAUSE.

Remove yourself from whatever spurred the emotion, find a quiet place if possible, and begin focusing on your breath.

Count your breaths - inhale, 1, I Am Love; exhale 2, I Am Love; inhale 3, I Am Love; exhale 4, I Am Love... All the way to ten, twenty ideal.

And here is the KEY: IF you loose track of focusing on the breath alone (for you will) and your mind drifts to anything else - once you catch yourself doing that, START OVER!

Once you do make it to 10, repeat until fully relaxed and back in alignment.

Freedom From Fear

Anger, Sadness, Fear, Guilt, Shame, Doubt
These are the strongest of negative emotions which tend to run our lives. 

When you release these from deep within at their core essence within you, your life naturally is lived more joyfully authentic and peaceful. You are freed!
